Orgy of Tolerance

 

If you haven’t been out to Montclair’s PEAK PERFORMANCES series yet (shame on you!) but if you haven’t, this is a good reason to go. Auteur and Provocateur Jan Fabre is bringing the world premiere of his new work ORGY OF TOLERANCE.
It is surprisingly easy to get out to Montclair, the tickets are affordable, the theater space is fantastic and the programming is exciting and cutting-edge. 
I’ve been hearing a lot of good early word for this piece – go check it out!

Alexander Kasser Theater
orgy of tolerance
Jan Fabre returns to Peak Performances @ Montclair with a brand new work! Two years ago on the Alexander Kasser Theater stage, Fabre presented two premieres that received critical acclaim: Je Suis Sang and Quando L’Uomo Principale e Una Donna (based on the provocative work of Yves Klein where a single dancer goes from being male to female before your very eyes!). 
 
Reacting to the alarming growth of neo-fascism worldwide and particularly in Europe, Belgian artist Jan Fabre takes a provocative stand with his newest work: Orgy of Tolerance. With the numbing realization that he lives in an age of normalcy and neo-fascists – where nothing is forbidden anymore – his navel is knotted with the extremism of tolerance and like Monty Python, his new show pricks the bubble of instant gratification. 
 
Not suitable for children under 18 years of age. Please note that this performance contains nudity, profanity and adult subject matters.
 
“Truly surprising provocative imagery.”
– The New York Times
